Artist INC Express – Teaching Artists

April 22, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Art. Business. Community. Artist INC Express is a weekend workshop for artists of all disciplines to address the business of art.

About this event

Artist INC Express is a 3-day intensive workshop created to address the specific business needs and challenges artists of all disciplines face every day.

Building upon Artist INC’s experience working with hundreds of artists in the Midwest region through its core Artist INC Live seminar, Artist INC Express was designed to focus participants on learning the most essential skills in the shortest amount of time.

Mid-America Arts Alliance, in partnership with Arkansas Arts Council, will host this workshop dedicated to bringing teaching artists together across the state of Arkansas to create peer support network. Artist INC Express is an intensive workshop created to address the specific professional needs and challenges that artists of all discipline face. Led by professional artist facilitators who are also teaching artists, the workshop is highly interactive and includes activities and discussions focused on goal setting, writing about your practice, and the various building blocks for a sustainable career that balances teaching and artistic practices. Artist INC Express immediately activates a network of artists in their community leading to additional peer to peer resource sharing and support long after the workshop concludes.

The workshop is open to all Arkansas teaching artists for free. Registration is required.

Workshop Facilitators: The Artist INC Express workshop is led by three of Artist INC’s peer facilitators.

Workshop Platform: Our live online workshop will be delivered via Zoom. Workshop participants have the opportunity to interact with the facilitators and other artists, engage in live discussions and activities. Once you’ve registered, you’ll receive instructions about log in information and links to the workshop.

Program Fees: There is no cost to attend the workshop. Once you registered, plan to attend all three days of the workshop. Because seats are limited (20), if you don’t plan to attend or have to cancel, please notify us in advance so we can open up the seat to artists on the wait list!

*Please be mindful that each participant will be taking up a seat that would otherwise benefit another artist. The cost of the program is $200 per participant; in response to the current pandemic and the financial strain to many family and artists, we are waiving the cost for participants. Once again, seats are limited – registered only if you are fully committed to attend.
